A walk after presents but before dinner at Holkham National Nature Reserve. A few photos and the full photo set here.
The sun beginning to set over the marshes
The grasslands harbour thousands of pink – footed geese
The wet grasslands attract lots of wigeon
There are some little pools and ponds – don’t often get this close to a little grebe.
And then down onto the huge beach in front of the dunes
Amazingly we found this queen red-tailed bumblebee – still alive but only just – a first for me on Christmas Day!
